BC High TE McShea commits to Harvard

By Roger Brown

Boston College hasn't had much luck with in-state recruits from the Class of 2012, and another local player slipped off the hook Wednesday when Boston College High tight end Jameson McShea committed to Harvard.

McShea, a Cotuit native, confirmed his decision via text message this morning.

The 6-foot-4, 240-pound McShea committed to Temple last summer, but reopened his recruitment last month and had narrowed his choices to BC and Harvard. BC assistant coach Sean Devine offered McShea a scholarship Saturday, shortly after tight end Sam Grant decommitted from BC.

McShea is the No. 6 recruit from Massachusetts in this year's class, and was named to ESPN Boston's MIAA All-State Team last month.

Massachusetts has six players in the Class of 2012 rated with three stars or better. Five of the six have committed and none selected BC. Catholic Memorial's four-star athlete Armani Reeves, the state's top recruit, is expected to choose either Michigan or Ohio State.
